programs like social security and medicare represent socialism and should have never been created in the first place? gosh, democrats, this is a scary question. another trap. you know what? it's only scary if you don't know who you are or what you believe in. i'm an american. i read. i believe in the constitution. and, of course, social security and medicare represent socialism. and should have never been created. since f.d.r. and his progressive buddies started social security, not our founding fathers, that should be fairly obvious to people. speaking by the way of f.d.r.'s progressive buddies, do you know who created social security? it was a guy named harry hopkins. the closest advisor to f.d.r. he was also accused of being a spy. he had a relationship with sta stalin and was one of the few people who could talk to stalin and get him to accomplish foreign policy. just remember, hopkins, same guy, created social security. so, let me tell you about social security. another recipient named ida may fuller. she was the first person to receive a monthly benefit. she worked for three
and the debate has been exploding. >> i have been told there is a clause in there that everyone that is medicare age will be visited and told to decide how they wish to die. this bothers me greatly and i would like for you to promise me that this is not in this bill. >> nobody is going to be forcing you to make a set of decisions on end of life care based on some bureaucratic law in washington. >> mr. president, i make a living selling individual health insurance. why is it that you have changed your strategy from talking about healthcare reform to health insurance reform and decided to villify the insurance companies? >> that is a fair question. my intent is not to villify insurance companies. if i was villifying them, it is what we would be doing would be to say that private insurance has no place in the healthcare market and some people believe that. i don't believe that. in is historic vote that took place this morning, members of the senate joined their colleagues in the house of representatives to pass a landmark health insurance reform package. if this legislation becomes law workers won'
from, you know, the senate version where ben nelson took $100 million medicare and medicaid payoff and decided to sign on the dotted line. how does it get there the house now? >> well, i hope that bart stupak remains stalworth. the problem with so many moderate democrats we have seen them fold every time. ben nelson did. now he has a huge backlash from his constituents. not just on the bribery part, but also on the abortion funding part of it as well. he's retreating. he's saying now he's saying oh, i think everybody should get the same deal i did. how are they going to pay for that on top of that? how is it going to get through? well, of course, the democrats who are in full freak-out mode are gaming this all out. it's possible that the senate might try to force the house to swallow what they put through. so they could expedite it on the timeline. but i think another thing that people have to worry about here is what is going on, on the ground, in massachusetts over this weekend? we talked about the unions, the service employees international union. they will be putting at least 3
it makes them look bad. naughty. so, in essence, they have this set of books. this one has medicare, medicaid, social security, emergency spending, you know, what it's costing us to fight a war. can you imagine if you said to the i.r.s., oh, yeah, i mean this one has, you know, this one has everything that i'm spending, but my employee pensions are in this one. and i'll just write them down in here. and anything that comes up like an emergency. i put that one in this set of books. just look at this one. we'd all be in jail. but yet these people in washington continue to play this game. why? because they know there is nobody like the i.r.s. namely, us, to go boom! on their head. nobody is going to say anything. let me come off the budget here for a second. it's not just the budget and they do this. they are lying to us all the time. i haven't felt like a soviet citizen ever in my life. but boy i feel like one when i saw nancy pelosi speak. she was, she was either clearly hallucinating, living in a parallel universe, or she's just lying. i think it's more likely seeing i'm not a consp
